Passengers on an Alaska Airlines flight to Hawaii this week got a nice treat when the flight changed its plan slightly in order to accommodate a handful of solar-eclipse chasers hoping to experience the “path of totality” — the darkest part of the moon’s shadow.
The flight seems to have gone well, if this video from Joe Rao, one of the spectators, is any indication.
This guy is excited! That said, if you were unaware of the eclipse, a man on your plane screaming “Oh my god!” and “Corona!” and “Totality! Totality!” might be a little weird.
But anyway, congratulations to all of the eclipse watchers! Big day for you!
